World Cup 2014: How can Colombia finish top of Group C?
We take a look at how Jose Pekerman's side can finish top of Group C
Colombia need just a draw from their final game against Japan in Cuiaba to qualify as Group C winners in the World Cup.
The South American dark horses have enjoyed a successful tournament so far, winning both of their group games. They beat Greece 3-0 in their opening fixture and also saw off the challenge of the Ivory Coast with a 2-1 win.
They will finish top of Group C if they can avoid defeat against Japan on Tuesday, who are yet to win a game.
They are currently three points ahead of Ivory Coast who are in second place, but Colombia have a goal difference of +1, while the Elephants have scored as many as they have let in.
Possible second round opponents:
Costa Rica or Italy on Saturday.
